Urban reality show producer Mona Scott-Young says her Love & Hip Hop reality franchise is not scripted. In an interview with DJ Sway on MTV’s RapFix Live, The former artist manager said, “There are like 40-something people on set. Do you think I can get them all to keep the secret? What do they do with script afterwards, eat it? This is their lives!”

Scott-Young also had a strong response to popular public opinion that her shows promote negative stereotypical images of black women:

“[These people] have every right to tell their stories. I think they’re valid stories, and judging by the numbers, they’re stories that people want to see and hear about. But if this is not your cup of tea, there are other great shows on other networks that you may view as well.”

But one of the commenters on Rhymeswithsnitch.com said it best:

There are more indications that murder suspect George Zimmerman is running out of cash. The NY Post’s Page Six reports that ABC talk Diva Barbara Walters walked away from an interview with Zimmerman after he demanded at the last minute that, in return for the chat, ABC put him and his wife up in a Florida hotel for a month.

Walters, who flew to Florida on Wednesday to meet with Zimmerman, was reportedly “appalled” at Zimmerman’s demand for a month of luxury accommodations.

Earlier today, Zimmerman launched his own website in an effort to wrest control of thousands of dollars in public donations away from his attorneys.

During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity that aired Wednesday night, murder suspect George Zimmerman said he didn’t regret shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin because he believed “it was all God’s plan.”

Trayvon’s father responded to Zimmerman’s statement, saying: “We must worship a different Dod because no way that MY God would have wanted George Zimmerman to kill my son.”

Zimmerman, who is charged with 2nd degree murder, later backtracked, saying “I do wish there was something, anything I could have done that would have put me in the position where I didn’t have to take his life. And I do want to tell everyone…that I’m sorry that this happened.”

Earlier today, Zimmerman, 28, re-launched his personal website to beg the public for donations — despite the fact that his attorney, Mark O’Mara, has a fund set up to collect money for GZ’s legal costs.

Apparently Zimmerman wants to snatch control of the public donations away from his attorney.

Didn’t I tell you that Basketball Wives cast member Jennifer Williams would drop her fake “bitch slap” lawsuit against Nia Crooks when the season ended? VH1 and Bravo will continue to produce degrading “reality” shows as long as their gullible viewers continue watching.

From Fresh:

Unconfirmed rumors suggest Jennifer Williams was not being asked back for another season of Basketball Wives after she filed a lawsuit against Evelyn Lozada’s assistant, Nia Crooks, for slapping her face during an episode of the show [click here if you missed that].

Now, after a rough summer of having her Bentley repossessed and her estranged husband Eric’s secret baby put on blast, Jennifer decided she’s just had enough and has dropped the suit without settlement.

    Just days after rapper The Game announced plans to walk down the aisle with his longtime baby mama, Tiffney Cambridge, the couple have called off their wedding.

    According to Sister2Sister.com, Jayceon Taylor and Tiffney announced their decision on their website. A source told Sister2Sister.com that the couple just didn’t get along after budgeting half a million dollars for their televised wedding.

    The source says The Game may not be in love with Tiffney, but “he is in love with his children.” That makes sense when you consider that some men take their roles as dads very seriously; they stick around even after the dopamine fades in their relationships.

    The goal for any business is to make a quick profit. But for fast food restaurants, such as Burger King and McDonald’s, profit comes at a cost to public safety.

    Fast food franchises looking to cut costs — and maximize profits — hire cheap labor, mostly high school students who don’t care about your health.

    Teenage fast food workers are known to brag about slipping something extra into the special sauce, and watching as unsuspecting diners eat their disgusting creations.

    But a worker at a Burger King franchise in Cleveland, Ohio went one step further by posting a photo on a message board of himself standing in 2 bins of lettuce.

    The employee posted the image with the caption: “This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King”.
